A man who disappeared in northern British Columbia last year is being sought by the RCMP.

RCMP are asking for help in locating Brandon Meeks, 24, who went missing while on a bicycle ride in June.

“We want to ensure that he’s safe, but also that his family is safe,” said RCMP Det.-Sgt. Kevin Dorn, who leads the missing persons investigation.

Meeks left his family’s home in B.c. and crossed the border to Winnipeg before he went missing on June 23.

He was last seen riding his bicycle near the intersection of Highway 1 and Highway 417 in the city of Coquitlam.

The missing man was last heard from June 25, 2017, but police say he has not been seen since.

The RCMP say Meeks’ bike was found at the end of the highway in Coquitlantic, a town of about 200 people in northern B.ca.

A reward of up to $5,000 is being offered for information leading to his capture.

Meeses’ family told CBC News he’s been missing since May 1.

He is described as a 5-foot-11, 150-pound black man, with short brown hair and brown eyes.

He has a large scar on his left cheek.

The Mounties are asking anyone with information to contact them at 1-877-929-9888.
